- "Well, the sign says it all: 'Central City Strong.' I let down this city by failing to prevent Mirror Monarch from tearing our community apart. But I will make it up to you. I promise. Together, we're rebuilding our community, our homes, our lives. It'll take time, but... but I believe in this city, its resilience... most of all, its people. That's how we'll survive this."

During Anti-Monitor Crisis, after Oliver Queen died while battling the Anti-Monitor and reformed the universe, this city was formed on Earth-Prime, which contained most elements of Central City of Earth-1; however, there are various differences between the two cities. One difference is the location of the graveyard where Nora Allen is buried.
Barry Allen was given by the city a medal of honor for the work he had done in law enforcement.
When Eva was publicly exposed as a mirror duplicate, she decided to replace all the inhabitants of the Earth-Prime with her mirrored versions. Her duplicates were attacking Central City citizens until she was convinced by Iris to give up. She then destroyed all the duplicates, returning the real people to the Earth. Then she went back to Mirrorverse. Afterwards, a support group for people trapped in the Mirrorverse was created on Central City and the Flash helped to rebuild the city.
